Mission Statement

To create homes for persons with developmental disabilities where faithful relationships based on forgiveness and celebration are nurtured;

To reveal the unique value and vocation of each person;

To be a sign of hope and love, and a light as a beacon on a hill to the world around us.

Description

L'Arche Wavecrest founded Abraham House, the first L'Arche community in California. Abraham House is a home where Core Members (persons with developmental disabilities) live with Assistants (persons without disabilities) and share life together as friends, not as clients and staff.

Abraham House is a group home where Core Members (persons with developmental disabilities) live with Assistants (persons without disabilities). The structure of the community is unique because there are no roles of patient or client; the Core Members and Assistants live in the household and share all aspects of daily life.

In addition, Abraham House also serves as a focal point for local community-based organizations, churches, public agencies, and individuals to work together to create a healthy community for all persons with developmental disabilities. Abraham House is located in Orange County, California.
